This month we’ve taken a look at works that unpack the relationships among science, reading, and writing. From practical advice about how to translate scientific information into usable insights to a deep-dive into the neurological networks that shape the way we make sense of the world–this month’s recommendations remind us that science writing is also an art that can help us unpack our human potential. Check out this month’s book recommendations for writers:
